  • 8 oz (about 2 cups) of your favorite pasta (linguine or fettuccine work well)
  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lemon, zest and juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Grated Parmesan cheese (optional, for serving)


  1. Cook the Pasta: In a large pot, bring salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.

  2. Sauté the Shrimp: In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter over medium-high heat. Season the shrimp with a pinch of salt and black pepper. Add the shrimp to the skillet and cook for about 2-3 minutes per side or until they turn pink and opaque. Remove the cooked shrimp from the skillet and set aside.

  3. Make the Lemon Garlic Sauce: In the same skillet, add the remaining butter and minced garlic. Sauté the garlic until fragrant but not browned, for about a minute. Stir in the lemon zest and lemon juice. Let it simmer for a minute.

  4. Combine and Serve: Return the cooked shrimp to the skillet, and toss them in the lemon garlic sauce. Add the cooked pasta and chopped fresh parsley. Gently toss everything together until well combined. Taste and adjust the seasoning with more salt, pepper, or lemon juice if needed.

  5. Serve: Serve your Lemon Garlic Shrimp Pasta in bowls. If desired, sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese for an extra layer of flavor.
